Pillars of The R.O.C.K.S.T.A.R. Path to Social Emotional Learning

The eight building blocks of R.O.C.K.S.T.A.R. by Rock My Campus

*It is important to understand that the success of each building block fully depends on the cultivation of the other pillars.



Kindness is having empathy and compassion for self and others marked by acts of generosity, consideration, or concern without expecting praise or reward.


Kindness is proven to boost happiness, well-being and is even linked to physical health benefits. Schools that practice kindness daily show reduced risk-taking behaviors, conflict, bullying, and mental health issues.

In light of statistics showing a 58% increase in mental health issues among youth, acts of generosity are the best antidote to decreasing these statistics as it increases happiness for all.

Why kindness is so important in teaching the R.O.C.K.S.T.A.R. Path to Social Emotional Learning by Rock My Campus

First, kindness must start within each of us. Showing self-compassion is key to wellbeing and mental health because it helps us be balanced and happy. It also allows us to be more impactful when being compassionate toward others.

Research shows that showing kindness to others creates endorphins in your brain as well as the recipients. This improves everyone's health and state of being. Ultimately, when we are happy then we can show up powerfully in life.

To succeed in life and function at our best, we all need to be supported. During a time of need, pain, struggle, or a bad day, an act of kindness can be what helps us get through difficult times.


Build Your Own Authentic Personal Band with Rock My Campus SEL

Your personal brand is YOU! It is everything that makes you who you are and how others experience you.

Out of all the building blocks, nothing will leave a greater impression on someone else than kindness. People will never forget how you make them feel. It is amazing how people will forgive your shortcomings when you show them empathy and compassion.

More importantly, showing kindness to yourself promotes your overall well-being and happiness, so you can show up more powerfully for others. Since your personal brand depends heavily on how you make others feel, kindness will definitely leave an emotional aftertaste that people will want to savor again and again.
